Are you a current or former smoker?
Are you between the ages of 50-80?
Did you smoke 2 packs a day for 10 years or 1 pack a day for 20 years?
In early 2021, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force expanded its criteria to make more patients eligible for a low-dose CT lung cancer screening. Far too often, lung cancer is not found until symptoms are present, which usually means the disease has reached a stage where it is much more difficult to treat.
For current or former heavy smokers, CT lung cancer screening can change the odds.
Unlike chest X-rays, CT scans can find tiny lung lesions at a stage where they can be treated much more successfully if found to be cancerous.
A low-dose CT lung cancer screening is:
- A painless, non-invasive, five-minute scan that could give you potentially lifesaving answers
- Check with your insurance company to verify coverage.
- If insurance does not cover this screening, Princeton Radiology also has an out-of-pocket option for $99—a small price to pay for peace of mind.
CT LUNG SCREENING COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.
If you’re concerned about lung cancer:
- Discuss your smoking history, risks, and the benefits of screening with your primary care clinician
- Once you have your referral, schedule an appointment for CT lung cancer screening at Princeton Radiology in Freehold, Marlboro, Mercerville, Monroe, or Princeton
